Long term is positive for UPS holders and will be strong going forward.
They have went from $90 to as high as $219 over the past year plus paid over $4 a share in dividends.
Wish all my holdings acted like this "dog". Lol.
For as well-run of a company as UPS is their stock is certainly acts like a dog. Made a few day trades to potentially re-establish my position with UPS but I'm not sure I want to now. Lol.
United Parcel Service, Inc. $UPS
Total Debt (mrq) $26.81B
Book Value Per Share (mrq) $8.22
JP Morgan ups price target to $243 and upgrades to "Overweight". The recent dip in UPS shares presents a tremendous buying opportunity.
Buy some calls.
UPS buy 216.38
nice bull flag pause here before it takes off to the next level...
such as perhaps...the basic form of how the stock market moves around on any time frame...
Now $205! UPS keeps rising. Wonder whether Buffett is adding. I said that a few months ago, and he wasn't.
I believe UPS was a Todd Combs or Ted Weschler stock buy. With regard to Todd, even though BRK apparently divested its large position in JPM, Todd Combs was still on the proxy for reelection to the JPM board.
When in doubt -- which is the normal situation with investments -- remember this advice: "The More You Trade, The More You Lose"
Warren Buffett should be ashamed that he's held a token amount of UPS for years but never expanded it to a meaningfully sized investment for BRK.
Ouch. $191 in pre-trading. Swing-and-a-miss!

"Selling Winners And Holding Losers - Even The Smartest Investors Get It Wrong
The study of how human instinct impacts on investment decisions is hotly debated and sometimes controversial. But even Ben Graham, the father of value investing, was aware of the potential for investors to err. He famously warned that "the investor's chief problem - and even his worst enemy - is likely to be himself."
One of the best known behavioural trap-doors is to hang onto losing investments for too long and sell winning positions too soon. It's a phenomenon known as the Disposition Effect. For years, researchers have warned that investors can damage returns by cutting winners and riding losers. Often, this warning has been pitched in the direction of relatively unsophisticated retail investors. But new research suggests that the same behavioral flaw exists in some of the market's smartest and best-informed traders - Short Sellers.
It serves as a reminder that the risk of succumbing to selling the wrong positions is something every investor needs to be aware of. So here's a review of how things can go wrong and why smart investors are susceptible too.
"Some of the best research into the consequences of all this was done by [Berkeley Professor] Terrance Odean, who waded through 10,000 accounts held at an American discount broker between 1987 and 1993. He found a clear tendency for investors to sell winning positions over losing positions. Moreover, there was no good reason for it - there was no evidence that these investors were deliberately rebalancing their portfolios. On average, after one year, the losing stock, that was held, fell by 1.0% against the market. While the winning stock, that was sold, actually gained 2.4% above the market."
I lost on this one. It had been fairly range bound but broke out to the upside on this one.
Anytime you sell a stock there's a 52% chance you made a mistake, according to academic research. That's why I rarely sell my blue chips. Of course, I only buy quality stocks like UPS to begin with.
Blade will be coming to an IPO soon. For now, UPS is a way of buying into that tech. I was looking at some YT videos on those "planes."
There was a feature on these and UPS's purchase on CNBC one morning last week, including extensive video, etc.
Likely why UPS stock is hot this week:
"Electric Vertical Aircraft Gain Momentum After UPS Order"
"Vermont-based Beta Technologies has announced a second order within a week for its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Last week, an order from United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) helped to validate the technology, according to Beta founder Kyle Clark. Today, Blade Urban Air Mobility announced plans to become the first to use the technology for passenger transport.
Blade is an urban air mobility platform that currently offers helicopter, seaplane, and executive jet service in select locations including New York City, Los Angeles, South Florida, and vacation destinations like Aspen, Colorado. The companies announced that Blade has ordered up to 20 of Beta's passenger-designed Electric Vertical Aircraft (EVA) with delivery beginning in late 2024. Last week, UPS agreed to take 10 cargo models of the aircraft, also scheduled to begin arriving in 2024, with an option to purchase up to 150 in total. "
I haven't seen anything in particular either. The Annual Report and Proxy materials came from UPS a few days ago, and I am looking forward to reading everything in detail this week.
$178, a surprise record high! Don't see any news on UPS.
Ha! For that moment I forgot about BRK's tiny UPS holding. $10,168,000 or less than 1/10th of a percent. UPS's All-time high IS around $175.

Making another run at $175. We'll see...
She doesn't tell how UPS raises their rates ~5% EVERY year when inflation is about 1%. My company uses the US mail more and more for deliveries.
I still own a small amount of UPS stock but haven't added since my first buy a decade ago.
I watched our CEO, Carol Tome, on Mad Money last week, and she did a great job. made me want to mortgage the home again to load up on UPS. Here is a clip I found on a portion of her appearance:
Ditto on long-term. Still annoys me even though it shouldn't.
You might be interested to know the CEO is scheduled to be on Mad Money on CNBC tonight.
She might shed some light on the company unknown to us. I'm in this for the long term, which I feel is very good.
I find the daily price action strange.
Given the macro-environment (hyper bullish), the shares were never "darlings" of this pandemic, and they should have been IMO. The day I bought UPS, it was a choice between UPS and FDX. I figured FDX might have more short-term upside (boy, did they) but over the long-haul, it was UPS each and every day. Now, UPS beat earnings and the market is still pretty much yawning. I don't get it.
It's time for a new post.
UPS is the top of the line. They are the best run operation of all the delivery carriers.
Their latest financials show just how well run of a company they are. Take it from someone who used then and others in my working years.
Agreed. All I see around my neighborhood at night are Amazon, FedEx, UPS, and USPS trucks. Long-term trend toward e-commerce has been accelerated.
Not sure why I've been sweating the small stuff. It's golden long-term even if CoVid gets "solved". Didn't expect this consolidation leg to take so long.
With reports of widespread shipping gridlock and a backlog of packages to pick up from shippers, UPS has to be literally printing $$$$$ right now.
Is UPS gonna behave like Zoom today?
Stock market going crazy but the stocks helped by CoVid get dinged? That's okay. The trend toward e-commerce is going to remain strong and unbroken. Give it a couple days, maybe let a few runners, run, and then rebalance toward UPS for longer-term horizon.
Off 9%. Extraordinary.
